the return of the denim skirt

While lace was a trend I immediately loved, the denim skirts I wasn't too sure about at first; maybe because they remind me of weirdly dressed language teachers at school or outfits I wore when I was 9, it just wasn't something I saw myself wearing again, ever. But then the button down skirts appeared on several blogs and I just fell in love with them. They are such a nice way to bring denim into the summer and so great to style with white, flowy tops. 

I spotted this dark blue button down denim skirt at Stradivarius and just had to have it. It has the perfect A-Line shape which just gives you so much freedom to move as oppose to the ones I used to wear as a child, that were more narrow.

To dress a denim skirt up, I would choose a pair of black pointy pumps and a dark jacket/blazer, to dress it down and make it more casual I would pair it with some sandals and maybe a kimono.

What do you think about denim skirts coming back into fashion? Did you wear them as a child and will you give them a go again?

  1. Denim skirts remind me of my childhood, I used to wear them all the time when I was younger!
    I haven't touched one in forever though. Thanks for reminding me that I can put this back in my wardrobe!

  2. I know what you mean, a denim skirt was the one thing I got dressed in at around age 9, and of course I hated it back then. These days i love it, but haven't found one I enjoy wearing yet.

  4. I love them too! I was the same- there were bits of the 70s trend that I really wasn't sure about but I love it now. Love how you're wearing it! x

  18. Great outfit!! :) I know exactly what you mean. Denim skirts bring me back to my childhood days and I never thought I'd want to wear them again now, but they definitely have grown on me and I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect ones.
